DAILY DECEMBER #2 // Make your own lip scrub

My lips suffer so much in the winter months, with the wind making them dry, cracked and chapped. I'm always tempted to buy one of the Lush lip scrubs, but I thought I'd have a go at making my own! It was really easy to make and much more purse-friendly...

It only requires two ingredients: petroleum jelly and sugar. You can also add some sort of natural flavouring, like vanilla essence - I didn't have any so I went without!

I took a tea spoon of the petroleum jelly and about two teaspoons of sugar, mixed them together and bam! You're done. Find a little pot to keep it in and bob's your uncle. Don't overuse it, about once or twice a week is enough to leave you with soft and lush lips. My housemate described this as "the shit", so it comes well recommended...
